Senior Club Notes 11th April 2016

The inaugural Terry McCormack memorial cycle took place on Saturday last and its success was testament to the legacy of the great man. Cyclists of all standards from semi professional to utterly amateur assembled in glorious weather conditions at Longford Rugby Club on Saturday morning last and headed off across the highways and byways of Longford and Leitrim, the very roads loved so much by Terry himself. It is also fitting of Terrys memory that so many Killoe people have taken up cycling in preparation for the event with the makings of a cycling club developing in the parish. The entire event was a great success with everyone in agreement that the day was thoroughly enjoyable

To the organisers, stewards, staff at the Sin Bin and Rugby Club, Gardaí, all involved from Cloone Gaa and our own Gaa club we say a massive thank you for your assistance.

Our senior and junior teams were in league action at the weekend. On Friday evening our junior team took on Colmcille at home and after a terrible first half, eventually found their rhythm and ran out convincing winners 5-5 to 10 points. On Sunday our senior team travelled to Granard and came away with a hard fought draw, 1-11 to 14 points.

This coming week our seniors are at home to Ballymahon in the league on Wednesday evening at 8.30p.m. while on Saturday evening our reserve 1 team are away to Dromard at 5.30p.m. On Sunday our junior reserve team have a tricky fixture away to Legan at 11am.
